    Once quantum computing becomes prevalent and cheap the 16384 bit key will be as useless as plaintext or posting a message on a postcard.

      Absolutely, cryptography as we know it won’t be the same after quantum computing. It will be interesting to see what we come up with then to address our need for encryption and privacy. So many things rely on the current methods of cryptography that the impact of this this would easily rival and exceed that of the year 2k bug. For all practical purposes it will impact every single computer out there. It is mind blowing and I really can’t imagine what we’ll do then, so I am incredibly curious about that too.
